The Nutrition Society in cooperation with The Nutrition Society Irish Section are pleased, as hosts, to invite you to the 13th European Nutrition Conference, Federation of European Nutrition Societies (FENS) 2019 in Dublin, Ireland. The conference will take place from 15 – 18 October 2019 in the Convention Centre Dublin, Ireland in the heart of Dublin city.
The FENS European Nutrition Conference is held once every four years, and is the premier European meeting in its field.
The theme for the 2019 conference is “Malnutrition in an Obese World: European Perspectives”.
The scientific programme will feature the best international speakers, covering a wide programme of subject areas across the spectrum of nutritional science in plenary and parallel session formats. Both oral and poster presentation opportunities for submitted papers and invited speaker slots, will be included in the four-day programme. A range of other sessions, such as workshops sessions, special “Hot Topic” presentations, industrial symposia, panel debates, and satellite symposia or sessions hosted by related organisations and societies are welcome. There is sufficient meeting space within the venue to accommodate a wide range of smaller meetings and sessions, as well as nearby hotels, should any visiting societies wish to hold private meetings off-site.
HealthGrain Forum contributes with a symposium “Improving diet quality with whole grain and cereal fibres” (Tuesday October 15, 2019 from 15:00-16:30). The following topics will be discussed:
- The role of whole grain in improving diet quality. Prof. Chris Seal, University Newcastle, UK
- Impact of processing and sprouting on whole grain products. Prof. Christophe Courtin, University of Leuven, Belgium
- Effects of whole grain intake on microbiome composition. Prof. Koen Venema, Maastricht University, Netherlands
The symposium is sponsored by Quaker Oats, Mondelez, Bühler, Nestlé Research and Puratos.
Dublin is one of Europe’s great cities. It is presently one of the major cities for industry and sciences. Dublin’s reputation for hospitality and for ensuring a fabulous welcome is legendary. Its cultural pedigree is renowned from the famous Book of Kells in Trinity College, a vibrant traditional music scene, to the fact that it has been designated as a UNESCO City of Literature with a literary heritage stretching over hundreds of years. It is small enough to ensure that all conference events and accommodation will be just a short walk away while large enough to allow one to get lost wandering its museums, music venues, restaurants and, of course, traditional pubs.
We look forward to welcoming and meeting you in Dublin in 2019 for a truly memorable FENS European Nutrition Conference.
